Wednesday, July 25, 2012 (Almost) Vintage: House Of Style

Back in 1989, hair was higher than ever, hip hop was taking over the scene, and supermodels ruled the world. MTV hired Cindy Crawford to host “House of Style“…and the rest is history. We can’t even begin to explain our obsession with the raddest show that ever was, but it could have something to do with Salt-n-Pepa’s epic runway moment, Naomi applying zit cream, shopping with the Spice Girls, and hitting the gym with Gwen Stefani. Not to mention, the series offered insightful interviews with some of the most iconic musicians, models, and designers ever. The show spanned the decade, giving us a backstage pass to fashion in all its forms and in case you haven’t heard, THEY’RE BRINGIN’ IT BACK! Until then, we’ve rounded up some of the best moments from their ’90s archives.

Wednesday, July 25, 2012 Globetrotter: Desert Dreamin’ With Amanda Shoemaker

It’s impossible to define Amanda Shoemaker, and that’s just the way she likes it. We were instantly hooked when we first discovered her blog, One Of Each, where the Scottsdale-based blogger documents her ever-changing style and hair color along with inspiring DIY projects. She’s a true Southwest native with an enviable collection of denim, moccasins, and gemstones – the latter of which she turns into one-of-a-kind necklaces and rings for her line, GEMEG Jewelry. You know, when she’s not busy working as an Art Director or going on impromptu desert adventures with her husband and BFFs. Ready to go for a ride?

“These are some of my favorite rings that I found in Tombstone, Arizona on a road trip. The tattoo is a design I made as the logo for my jewelry line. I loved the geometric design so thought, ‘What the heck? Tattoo time!’”

“This is my husband, Aaron. He’s the love of my life. We went to the Pacific Northwest for our first anniversary last year, and this was taken right before our near-death kayaking experience.”

“I love going to northern Arizona in the summer to escape the heat. Sedona, Jerome and Flagstaff are a few of my favorites. These are two shots I got at the Grand Canyon a few years ago. Pretty incredible, no?”

“Here are a few of my precious gemstones. I’ve had a thing with collecting stones ever since I was a child. I would pick out the most lovely rocks from my front yard, put them in tiny Dixie cups, and go door to door in my neighborhood selling “cups of rocks” for fifty cents. A creative saleswoman at heart, I guess. My favorite are the Chalcopyrite or Peacock Ore on the right. They come in all sorts of teal and purple hues.”

“I also have a thing for collecting moccasins. Lucky for me, you can easily find them all over Arizona.”

“My best friend Annie and I are always getting into trouble. We drove up to Flagstaff last weekend on a spur-of-the-moment trip. When we arrived, we began our search for a place to crash for the night and ended up at the Motel Du Beau. It was quite the experience, being my first time staying at a hostel.”

“Annie beat me at our ‘Who can tie the cherry stem with their tongue the fastest?’ game.”

“There’s nothing like the views in Arizona. My favorite!”

Tuesday, July 24, 2012 Studio Soundtracks: Cali Love

Since our weekends have been filled with sun, sand, and scoping surfer babes lately, we thought it was only fitting to share some of our favorite tracks dedicated to California. From Joan Jett belting out a love letter to Hollywood to the strange adventures and lo-fi jams of Ariel Pink, this one’s for the Best Coast.

“Hollywood” by The Runaways

“I have an obsession with the music and style of the Seventies, and The Runaways nailed both. This is a track from their second album, Queens of Noise, and I think it perfectly embodies LA rock ‘n roll vibes to this day.”

“Life In LA” by Ariel Pink

“One of my favorite odes to our weird and wonderful city by Ariel Pink. Let’s just say it’s an anything but typical day in Beverly Hills.”

“Walking In LA” by Missing Persons

“This Eighties classic makes the truest statement ever – nobody walks in LA!  I love finding videos of live performances because, like all of my favorite leading ladies, Dale Bozzio always wore the coolest stuff on stage!”

“Under The Bridge” by Red Hot Chili Peppers

“Red Hot Chili Peppers were my favorite band growing up, and nothing was better during those teen angsty moments than “Under The Bridge”. This video brings me back to the days where MTV actually played music videos.”

“California Love” by Tupac & Dr. Dre

“What would an ode to Cali be without a little “California Love”? It’s one of those songs will forever be able to bring a party back to life!”
